• Human Growth Hormone Hgh Aging Effects
    365 words
    Human Growth Hormone Human Growth Hormone is a chemical formula that prevents biological aging. To most people, the only thing known to do the same as HGH is "the fountain of youth." HGH is one of many endocrine hormones found in the human anatomy, like estrogen, progestorene, testosterone, melatonin and DHEA, which decline in production with age. Many of these hormones can be replaced to deter some of the effects of aging. HGH is by far more superior than any other of the hormones not only beca...
  • The Hormones And Development Of One's Sex
    421 words
    The Hormones and Development of One's Sex The objectives of this article as I saw them were, (1) to show how fetal gonads acquire the ability to function as endocrine organs, and (2), to show the mechanisms by which the endocrine secretions modulate male development. The researchers went through an extremely extensive explanation of the formation of the sexual phenotypes by detailing the development of germ cells. They explained how women's and men's gonads appear identical until Ley dig cells, ...
  • Hormones Anterior Pituitary
    1,053 words
    Hormones are organic substances that are secreted by plants and animals and that function in the regulation of physiological activities and in maintaining homeostasis. They carry out their functions by evoking responses from specific organs or tissues that are adapted to react to minute quantities of them. The classical view of hormones is that they are transmitted to their targets in the bloodstream after discharge from the glands that secrete them. This mode of discharge (directly into the blo...
  • Steroids The Easy Way To Destruction
    535 words
    Steroids: The Easy Way To Destruction Athletes' use of steroids is very popular these days, but even though steroids do produce quick gains in muscle size, they also have some very serious side effects. After long-term use, steroids can cause a change in behavior, a decrease in the body's natural hormone production, and most seriously of all, addiction. One very noticeable characteristic of steroids use is a great chance in the behavior of the user. The major behavioral change is an uncontrollab...
  • Do Men Have Symptoms Of Pms
    593 words
    The meaning of premenstrual, according to Webster's Dictionary, is: 'occurring before a menstrual period.' Men do not have menstrual cycles, since they do not have uteri. A uterus is required for menses. Does the possibility exist that men have the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS)? Can the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome be associated with the male species? Due to the numerous symptoms associated with PMS, this essay deals with the symptoms of: irritability and stress, food cravings and...
  • Analyzing The Trade Dispute Of Hormone Treated Beef

    Analyzing the Trade Dispute of Hormone-treated Beef John For ys As technology progresses, many issues arise about ethics, between progress and the repercussions society faces from that progress. In 1989, a trade conflict arose, that not only affected the economies of the world, but also arose health issues, that were neglected by the law as well as the World Trade Organization. The trade conflict that I am referring to is Europe's ban of hormone-treated beef and the World Trade Organization ruli...
  • The Pituitary Gland And Dwarfism
    448 words
    The Pituitary Gland and Dwarfism The Pituitary Gland is situated at the base of the brain and it produces hormones which control growth. Too large an amount of these hormones causes giantism, a condition where facial features, hands, etc. become abnormally large. Too little causes dwarfism, where the overall stature of a person is very small. Dwarfism is the condition of being undersized, or less than 127 cm (50 in) in height. Some dwarfs have been less than 64 cm (24 in) in height when fully g...
  • The Endocrine System Pituitary Gland
    1,405 words
    Endocrine System Is a group of specialized organs and body tissues that produce, store, and secrete chemical substances known as hormones. As the body's chemical messengers, hormones transfer information and instructions from one set of cells to another. Because of the hormones they produce, endocrine organs have a great deal of influence over the body. Among their many jobs are regulating the body's growth and development, controlling the function of various tissues, supporting pregnancy and ot...
  • Misconcepualiztion Of Hormone Fausto Sterling
    899 words
    MISCONCEPUALIZATION OF HORMONE RESEARCH Hormone research has been greatly influenced by cultural assumptions about the dimorphism of gender. Much of the scientific data produced and taken as 'knowledge' reaffirms social ideologies already thought to be true and uses this data to essentially prove these ideas. In the case of hormone research, ideas about the innate differences between males and females were imposed upon the scientific methodologies and the conclusions made. The misconception of e...
  • Stimulating Hormone Pituitary Hormones Lobe

    Diabetes Insipidus, rare disease caused by deficiency of vasopressin, one of the hormones of the posterior pituitary gland, which controls the amount of urine secreted by the kidneys. The symptoms of diabetes insipidus are marked thirst and the excretion of large quantities of urine, as much as 4 to 10 liters a day. This urine has a low specific gravity and contains no excess sugar. In many cases, injection or nasal inhalation of vasopressin controls the symptoms of the disease. Pituitary Gland,...
  • Plant Hormones Cell Division
    1,655 words
    Plant hormones are specialized chemical substances produced by plants. They are the main internal factors controlling growth and development. Hormones are produced in one part of a plant and transported to others, where they are effective in very small amounts. Depending on the target tissue, a given hormone may have different effects. Plant hormones play an integral role in controlling the growth and development of plants. A plant hormone is generally described as an organic compound synthesize...
  • The Role Of Progesterone In Sexual Attraction
    838 words
    Along with the above-mentioned sexual hormones, scientists, in the recent times, tend to associate pheromone with sexual attraction as well. Pheromone, odor produced by an animal that affects the behavior of other animals. The way pheromones work is analogous to the way hormones in the body send specific chemical signals from one set of cells to another, causing them to perform a certain action. The study, led by psychologists Kathleen Stern and Martha McClintock at the University of Chicago in ...

  • Endocrine System Hormone Target Cell
    467 words
    The foundations of the Endocrine System consist of hormones and glands. These glands are ductless and their secretions are sent through the bloodstream. Endocrine glands also control bodily metabolic activity. The major glands that make up the human endocrine system are the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pineal body, the pancreas, and the reproductive glands, which include the ovaries and testes. The endocrine system has three basic functions, regulate metabolic funct...
  • Hormone Mimics Fetus Defect Development

    A lack of authoritative evidence of adverse health effects in humans, yet abundant suggestive evidence associating these chemicals with problems in animals, has provided for a volatile debate. The mounting of scientific evidence on hormone mimics spurred the government to pass legislation requiring that all pesticides be screened for estrogenic hormones according to Goldfarb. Detection of estrogenic hormones are also being implemented in drinking water. The World Resources Institute reports that...
  • Endocrine Cells Gastrin Concentration Study
    271 words
    It is well known that serum gastrin is an important hormone secreted by endocrine cells. Thus, it is important to study gastrin activity and its implications during digestion to better understand the impact that this hormone has upon the digestive system. Current research discusses the possibility that concentrations of gastrin may play a role in early detection of pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1). One study concluded that early dete...
  • Bed Wetting Isbe D

    Bed-wetting is a common problem in children, ages 6 to 12. In the U. S. , five to seven million children are affected by this condition. Research suggests that if both parents have a history of bed-wetting, their child has a 70 percent chance of being a bed-wetter. Bed-wetting is usually not an emotional, learning or behavioral problem. Your child is not wetting the bed on purpose. However, children who do not get help or who are punished for bed-wetting might develop emotional or behavioral pr...
